Cheers for your help

Actions taken so far can be found here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/234967/help-with-combofix-moved/

The problems.
1. Google Chome wasn't Loading and I got error message:
"The application failed to intialize properly (0xc000005). Click on OK to terminate the application"
I fixed that buy adding --NO-SANDBOX in the "Target" box under Properties
All other web browsers work.
2. Windows and Norton will not Update, the Norton troubleshoot says something like internet explorer default connection is dial up, or something along those lines...even while though IE connect though the network.
3. Microsoft.com wont load in any web browser. Also when "boopme" was trying to help me in the other thread a lot of the links he posted wouldn't work, and if the links worked, the links to the .exe downloads wouldn't, I don't if that was just because the links where dead or my PC was blocking them.
4. Just about every application "boopme" got me to download in order to fix these problems would in some way or another not work, one just wouldn't install, another wouldn't download updates.
and finally this is weird, and I'm not sure if I accidentally did it, but my Clock is now in 24hour time :S

Oh I just thought of what it might be, I got sick of the Microsoft genuine thing popping up, so I download a patch to remove it/stop it popping up

I think I got the patch from here http://www.mydigitallife.info/2006/04/26/d...ons-nag-screen/
